AG's Office needs Gov's signature on warrant

Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo must sign a warrant for Christopher Woodrome by Thursday, otherwise he may be released from house arrest. Woodrome is wanted in New Mexico where he is charged with multiple counts of kidnapping and rape.

The Guam Attorney General's Office picked up the governor's warrant today and informed the court that Governor Eddie Calvo would need to sign it by Thursday, otherwise Woodrome's case would be thrown out and the AG would have to seek another warrant from New Mexico.  Woodrome is wanted in New Mexico for allegedly sexually assaulting a female minor multiple times over several years.  The New Mexico prosecution believes Woodrome fled to Guam to avoid the charges. 

He remains on release under the supervision of a-third party custodian until he is picked up and sent back to New Mexico if the governor signs the warrant by Thursday.
